Indie rockers Ruby Bones combine energetic rhythms with visceral, existential lyrics and unabashed hooks to form short, punchy songs best digested in the sweat-soaked clubs that define New Jersey and Brooklyn. 

Made up of vocalist/guitarist Chris Nova, drummer James Janocha, and South African import FC Spies on bass, the trio (along with Denis Daley providing sax) describes itself as "Bruce Springsteen on cocaine after a few drags off a helium balloon." 

With a mutual love of rock and roll, the band turned Nova's folk songs into thoughtful yet vibrant tracks inspired by love, loss and the double-edged blade of a technology-reliant culture.
